GOOD Event: Join Us for the Atlanta Business Collaborative

by GOOD Partner

April 3, 2013

This post is brought to you by GOOD, with support from UPS. We’ve teamed up to bring you the Small Business Collaborative, a series sharing stories about innovative small businesses that are changing business as usual for their communities and beyond. Learn how UPS is helping small businesses work better and more sustainably here.

This April, GOOD is bringing the Small Business Collaborative to Atlanta to celebrate extraordinary Atlanta-based small business leaders that are supporting the community in creative, sustainable and groundbreaking ways.

Over the course of three days, we will create an open marketplace for select small businesses, in addition to hosting workshops for the local small business community.

Please join us at Westside Provision District on April 17, 18 & 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Located on the fourth floor, the event is free and open to the public.
